Every year I donate a significant portion of our proceeds (around 10%) to local rescues and shelters.
I give monthly contributions, donate in memory of patients I put to sleep, and give sums at the end of the year. To spread the love, I support many different groups on both sides of the river.
Then I had the idea – what if instead of just sending a check, I could get others to donate as well? Bring even MORE funds to the rescue or shelter? Help save even MORE animals? Last year I participated in my first donor match.
So, we are proud to be part of two donor match programs!
One for cats, one for dogs!
Want to help cats? Our donor match for Belleville Area Humane Society feline expansion on Giving Tuesday was a huge success! The community donated $2,133 in one day, making the match – thank you everyone!
Want to help dogs? Missed Giving Tuesday? Need a Christmas gift for a hard-to-shop-for person? Donations made to St. Louis Senior Dog Project Dec 1-18, were matched to help get more old dogs into loving homes. Donation letters will be received before Christmas!
Rest assured, this won’t be the only time I do this. I’m just kicking myself for not having thought of it sooner!
Can’t donate? No worries! Every rescue and shelter would LOVE to have volunteers! You can walk dogs, clean cages, or even help with computer work without having to leave home.
Can’t volunteer? Spread the word about adoption. It’s easy and doesn’t cost a thing!
